Lot of members from our club have the electric cutouts. Most have QTP. They should be installed right after the Cats. We had a club Dyno day and all that have them showed increases in power, some as much as 10hp gains. You are creating less restriction on your exhaust with the cutouts open, which equals more HP. I have them on my V6 and love them. Hope this helps.

I had the QTPs installed when RPM Motorsports did the cam last month. Switch is in the glove box. As already suggested my cutouts were installed just after the cats. I don't have any before and after dyno numbers but I didn't do it for dyno numbers. I only wish I had these installed a year ago right after I bought the car.

I have Race Ready Performance electrical cut-outs on my V6...but they will work on the V6 & the V8. Here's a pic of my switch...very easy to access...especially if I see a police car...lol. And Race Ready makes a remote control version now so you don't even have to install a switch.

Here's a picture taken of my cut-outs just last week. I have a little over 8000 miles on my cut-outs and I have them open a lot. As you can see...there is some soot building up at the bend in each pipe...so I cleaned it all up this weekend. It wiped right off with no problem at all and I saw no evidence of it elsewhere...and believe me, I'm looking...lol. And nevermind the mud...I cleaned it up too.

My mom always said "you can never be too rich or too thin"...lol...so what's the problem?

But seriously...she's always run a super rich mix so that's why I'm going to go ahead and get her tuned now that I installed the TB. I'm looking forward to no more dirty butt.
